Amazing first trip on Disney cruise line to Panama Canal!

This was the first time I have sailed with DCL. The Wonder looked beautiful coming off its 2017 refurbishment. 14 nights was a gamble for a cruise line I have never sailed before but Disney lived up to it's reputation for excellence. Of note, this particular cruise had only 300 children aboard. It was a running joke among the crew. It made for what was probably a much quieter cruise experience ...

definitely very disappointed ! An expensive and bad cruise. It is not worth the price paid . Poorly organized cruise.. The port adventures White House Beach in Grand Cayman and Cabo San Lucas by Sea were a scam. the food of low quality. Only two good shows in 14 nights. the parties of pirates and frozen were very poor . and the worst was the mistreatment received in front of an inconvenience ...

This was my first (and probably last) Disney cruise. I had been lead to believe that Disney is a step up from other mainline cruises (my experience there is Holland America, Princess and Royal Caribbean), but other than the specifically Disney events (shows, characters, etc.), it wasn't any better. I understand that the Wonder had been recently in dry dock and the cabins and public areas looked ...

Great Experience Except Restaurant Food Was Lacking

Disney did it well with having Captain Ken Puckett (former Panama Canal pilot boat captain) and Ron Clements (animator and director of many wonderful animated Disney movies, including Moana and The Little Mermaid) give lectures during sea days. There were also movies shown related to Ron Clements' lectures, animation classes, other Disney movies, Disney shows, cooking classes, hide and go seek ...

Disney has always been on top of our lists in terms of quality and ability to exceed our expectations. We enjoy their movies, Disneyland and merchandise. Cruises now are part of that list. This was our first cruise with Disney while cruising with several other cruise lines--approximately 10 other cruises. The Disney cruise exceeded all of our previous cruises. While on board we reserved 4 ...

Our 3rd Disney Cruise Was Remarkable

We returned Disney for our 16th overall cruise, our 3rd Dinesy cruise and our first Panama Canal Cruise. Compared to all of the other lines we have traveled only Celebrity comes close to matching the quality of Disney. This was our second time on the Wonder. The ship was updated before we sailed. It was nice, clean and easy to get around on. Considering this was a 14-day cruise there were ...

14 Day Panama Canal Cruise- Our Second Disney Cruise..and Likely Our Last

We chose this cruise because we went on a Mediterranean cruise September 2016 and had a great time, but loved the Disney Magic so much that we wished we had more time on the ship. The experience started out rough...we went on a Disney Cruise for a top dollar FAMILY friendly experience and because of the "Disney Vacation Club" membership it was 90% Senior citizen and with only about 150 kids on ...

Great Panama Canal Cruise, Dry Dock did Wonders to the Wonder

We sailed on the Wonder last year for a 5 day before dry dock. The work that they did was fantastic. Cabanas (the buffet) is much more functional and much roomier than it used to be, never really had any trouble finding a table inside. The kids areas - the Oceaneer Lab and Club were both much better than last year. We had difficulty getting our son to go last year, this year he didn't want ...

This service is the first and foremost thing I remember from our 14 day cruise through the Panama Canal. The crew provided much better service than I have experienced at almost any Disney resort. I did not receive one bit of dissatisfactory service. Everyone was polite, friendly, professional, engaging, dutiful and thorough. I'll start with the positives: The food was much better than I ...

Great cruise but some things not up to Disney standard

This was our 17th Disney cruise and it came up short in some areas-food quality, entertainment, and excursions in ports. The quality of the food served was not up to par and less than we have experienced on past cruises with Disney. Actually recent Celebrity and Princess cruise food was better. Food. Dining service was very good and they did everything they could to make up for the food by ...
